A National Collaboration to Promote Prescription Drug Safety

A first-of-its-kind public-private partnership, the Prescription Drug Safety Network is national coalition of healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, pharmacies, foundations, and state leaders committed to empowering Americans with the knowledge and skills to make safe and healthy decisions about prescription medications.


The Epidemic

Proactive Solutions Through Population-Level Prevention Education

The U.S. opioid epidemic has put our country in a state of public health emergency. So far, many of the efforts to address this crisis have been focused on increasing response and expanding access to treatment.

EVERFI created the Prescription Drug Safety Network (PDSN) to bring together partners committed to getting ahead of the problem through population-level prevention. Our mission is to raise awareness at a national level and bring an evidence-based curriculum to students at scale.

Founding Partners

Since the Network’s inception in fall 2017, our founding partners have empowered more than 90,000 students across the US with a digital curriculum that uses evidence-based strategies to empower young Americans with the skills to make safe and healthy decisions about prescription medications.

  • Population-Level Prevention

    In order to make true long-term progress on the opioid crisis, we must start with evidence-based prevention programming in schools, as recommended by the White House Opioid Commission.

  • Innovative Digital Solutions

    Our digital courses use interactive simulations and videos to deliver a highly engaging learning experience. EVERFI’s robust data platform provides real-time insights into students’ attitudes and behaviors -- both locally and nationally.

  • Scale and Impact

    Each Network partner commits to bringing our high school prevention course to a select group of communities. EVERFI’s team of 150 former educators implements the program in classrooms across the country.
